Pecan Valley GCD is developing a new water quality testing program for DeWitt County.
Pecan Valley is accepting applications for participation by private wells located throughout the county. PVGCD’s plan is to test a water well in every 2-½ mile grid for every aquifer in the county. This large scale testing will require 225 water wells.
The goal is to test 80 water wells in the Jasper Aquifer, 70 in the Evangeline Aquifer, 25 in the Chicot Aquifer and 50 in the Burkeville Aquifer.
Each water well selected will have a baseline water quality test performed. In addition, depending on grid, additional testing will be performed for wells located in either hydraulic fracturing or uranium mining areas. This additional testing would include 80 water wells for the hydraulic fracturing test and 40 wells for the uranium mining test.
